Der­ma­tol­o­gist and cos­me­tol­o­gist “The best skin­care tip was one that I picked up from my der­ma­tol­o­gist hero Dr. Al­bert Klig­man—the first step to any anti-age­ing pro­gram is hy­dra­tion. Skin dry­ness in­duces in­flam­ma­tion which aids and ex­pe­dites age­ing. This is es­pe­cially true for our coun­try where the sun is harsh and the air is pol­luted—which adds to the dam­age.” Rec­om­mended regime: Use a gen­tle yet ef­fec­tive cleanser to clear the skin of pol­lu­tants, dirt and dust. Use a sun­screen of SPF 30 or more even if you are in­doors (yes, sun­rays pen­e­trate win­dows!) to fight against sun­burns and dam­age. Choose a sun­screen that also has PA +++ or ++++, which will help pro­tect against pig­men­ta­tion, age­ing and deeper pen­e­trat­ing UV rays.
